NIAS-DST Training Programme: Science & Technology: Global Developments & Perspectives, Call for Nominations
A reality to reckon with, advancement and development of science and technology (S&T) have had a defining impact and implication on the human civilization. Development and advancement of S&T is mostly engaged through the perspective of progress of human civilization in general and respective nation states in particular. While such perspectives take centre stage of the engagement, many other subtle but very important aspects of S&T’s interactions with human societies are either overlooked or inadequately engaged with. One such perspective in this regard has been the impact of S&T developments on the day to day lives of the humans as a whole.
There is also a greater need to critically engage with both the contributions and the fall outs. One of the ways of doing the same is to take the global developments in S&T and juxtapose with the developments locally. This process of engagement would help in identifying the major areas of coordination with global and local perspectives.
